Male urology

The prostate gland (normally about the size of a chestnut) lies just beneath the bladder. The urethra (water pipe) runs through the middle of the prostate. The main function of the prostate is during a man's reproductive life. It produces fluid containing chemicals which help sperm with fertilisation.

Prostate problems are very common. Around 1 in 5 men will develop prostatic symptoms and 1 in 4 will develop prostate cancer, now the most frequent cancer in men.

Our urology team diagnose and treat a range of prostate problems, both benign (non-cancerous) and cancerous.

Our department has a specialist team of four Consultant Urologists (Mr Martin Moody, Mr Eng Ong, Mr Soumya Misra and Mr Mike Foster), two Specialty Doctors (Mr Faisal Khan and Locum Doctor), one Core Trainee, one Foundation Year-2 doctor, one Physician Associate, three Clinical Nurse Specialists, one Urology Support Nurse and a dedicated secretarial team.
